Achieving the Success You Desire
As much as you try to control the things in your life, there are times when things don't go your way. You can have a life plan all mapped out, and one day, that plan goes awry for one reason or another.

That's what happened to Cornell Thomas. He was certain it was his destiny to play professional basketball. He had done the work, the training... and one day, he got hurt.

Suddenly, his dream was squashed.

Did he give up on life completely? Not even close. Today, he's doing something else he loves: helping people reach their dreams through his life mapping advice, his coaching, and his "power of positivity."

Thomas says that, "you might have to sacrifice your plan B for your plan A, even if you don't know it's your plan B at the time."

You CAN control your destiny, by the energy you put out. If you're constantly thinking negative thoughts, your future will be full of negativity. Alternately, if you're always thinking in the positive and envisioning success in your future, you can manifest that success. 

What if you find yourself in a place where you feel "stuck"? For example, you may feel you aren't reaching your goals fast enough, or you keep getting a "no" from those who hold keys to your success.

Look at what you've accomplished already. Take into account the successes you've realized to this point in your life. There are so many people who would love to do what YOU do every single day. Appreciate the success and it will lead you to more success in the future. 

Listen in as Thomas joins Andrea and Lisa to share more about his journey to success, as well as simple ways you can also achieve what you desire.
